Capo: 3rd fret

[Verse 1]
Em            G                D
Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in
    Bm7
the early morning
Em      G               D             Bm7
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
Em          G           D
I watch her go with a surge of that
  Bm7
well-known sadness
E             A7              D
And I have to sit down for a while
 
[Pre-Chorus]
      Em               A7
The feeling that I'm losing her
D      D7
forever
Em                  A7           D    D7
And without really entering her world
      Em          A7
I'm glad whenever I can share
     D
her laughter
      A           D
That funny little girl
 
[Chorus]
                    Em7             D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
         A              E
I try to capture every minute
E7              D
The feeling in it
                   Em7               D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
             Em7                D
Do I really see what's in her mind?
             A                  E
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
E7            D
She keeps on growing
                    Em7              D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
 
[Verse 2]
Em              G          D           Bm7
Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Em      G            D              Bm7
Barely awake, I let precious time go by
Em              G                  D         Bm7
Then when she’s gone, there's that odd melancholy feeling
E               A7            D
And a sense of guilt I can’t deny
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Em                      A7        D        D7
What happened to those wonderful adventures
Em                A7              D   D7
The places I had planned for us to go
Em                       A7              D
Well, some of that we did, but most we didn't
A                       D
And why, I just don't know
 
[Chorus]
                Em7                 D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
         A              E
I try to capture every minute
E7              D
The feeling in it
                   Em7               D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
             Em7                D
Do I really see what's in her mind?
             A                  E
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
E7            D
She keeps on growing
                    Em7              D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
 
[Bridge]
Em                    A7                  D     D7
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
    Em               A7                 D
And save it from the funny tricks of time
                        A7
Slipping through my fingers
 
Em7 D A E E7 D Em7 D Em7 D A E E7 D Em7 D
 
[Verse 3]
Em           G                  D
Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in
Bm7
the early morning
Em         G             D            Bm7
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile

                  Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that I'm losing her forever
And without really entering her world
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake I let precious time go by
Then when she's gone, there's that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
Well, some of that we did, but most we didn't
And why, I just don't know

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time

Slipping through my fingers...

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
